jobs, gm is back, chrysler is the fastest-growing auto maker in the nation, what is their response? it is outrageous, their response. in the last hours of this campaign, they have become truly desperate. i came from ohio -- they are running an ad in ohio and the following -- this is the god's truth. the ad they are running says the following -- it says that barack obama bankrupting the automobile industry so that it could be sold to the italians -- i do not know they have against the italians -- sold to the italians so they could offshore to china. that is what they are saying -- i am not making this up. ladies and gentlemen, here is the cynical part. just imagine, your from the upper midwest, my state is delaware, which was one of the biggest automobile producing states in the country. after all those guys and families have been through, hard-working folks working their whole lives, through no fault of their own because of the policies of the last administration in the last year before got elected, 400,000 automobile jobs lost. here is what is more important -- 400,000 people drop

for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is what is most important to this guy here and the other uaw workers that are here. it is the policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to put in place that will make the auto industry strong -- [indiscernbile] he wants sensible regulations. he wants tax reform that will ensure we can get the auto companies back on their feet. he wants to make sure that trade is fair. he wants workers trained to work better for them. he wants their energy costs now. that is what will keep energy -- otter jobs here in ohio. that is what mitt romney is going to. balks, we are in the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. we got the momentum on our side. are we going to be sure that we take mitt romney over the goal line in the next
? guest: well, i think that people in wisconsin look it's been tough here. we lost the gm plant in the last few months of george w. bush's tenure. we've lost some manufacturing jobs. you know, we've had a governor who has had a pretty progressive agenda that hasn't allowed jobs to grow. but i do think that people in wisconsin know that things are getting better that we're turning a corner. our unemployment rate is a little lower than nationally. and i think they understand that this country's headed in the right direction. we're on the right track. we came from a big hole. the president has dug hymn out of this -- himself out of this whole. host: your job and the obama campaign's job more difficult because of the reerecall? guest: i don't think it has an impact one way or the other. host: and so this is mike tate of the wisconsin democratic party joining us and talking about issues when it comes to wisconsin. we track one more call. ohio republican line good morning. caller: yes. i love how obama has taken such pride in saying that he has created so many jobs. there are so many
companies through bankruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with the communities depending on autos. the policies that will be good for the auto industry, for the state of ohio. [applause] he wants sensible regulations, for the auto companies and to make sure we can get the auto companies on their feet and make sure trade is fair. he wants worker retraining to work better. that will keep auto jobs in ohio. and strengthen the industry. that is what mitt romney will do. fourths -- we're in the quarter and the score is tied. we're in the red zone. the momentum is on our side. will we be sure we take mitt romney over the goal line in the next eight days? ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, mitt romney. >> thank you. [applause] >> what an avon lake welcome. it is an honor to be with you. than, you, sen. portman, and sen. taylor. he was my sparring partner in
be with gm or ford for your entire career, people realize it is not as clear and they're open to more open opportunities. some of it is getting the people have that innovative spirit to recognize now there is an opportunity with the company is developing here. maybe it is time to jump ship. but more importantly, how do you get the folks who left to try to come back here? i'm sure there are tens of thousands of people born and raised here or who went to one of the universities who would love to come back. they decided to leave. it really is all about talent. it is the idea plus capital, but the most important ingredient is talent. >> the most important agreement is training and education. another community that is of great interest and concern is not only the people working at these great companies but the people who are not working at all. detroit has way too many of them. i'm curious with the processes for the marginalized and here to for disenfranchised population of detroit. a quick comment from you -- what do you think is going to happen and what do you think should happen? >> if the e
for voters? guest: it is been tough here. we lost the gm plant during the bush administration. we lost manufacturing jobs. we have had a governor who was had a regressive agenda that is not a lot of jobs to grow and flourish here. i do think that people in wisconsin know that things are getting better, we are turning the corner. our unemployment rate is a little lower than it is a nationally. and i think they understand that this country is headed in the right direction. we are headed in the right track. we came from a big hole. the country has dug themselves of this whole. host: your job -- is it more difficult because of the recall election? guest: i do not think so. i do not know that it has an impact one way or the other. host: and so this is mike tate of the wisconsin democratic party. one more call, ohio, on our line for republicans, margarite. caller: there are so many people that are having to work part-time jobs. or are working two temporary jobs, trying to make ends meet because they are not hiring full-time. and they can't these as one full job. i do not get that. the pride
